Release of the Global Innovation Index 2019
WIPO, Cornell University and INSEAD recently published the Global Innovation Index (GII) 2019.

The current edition ranks the innovation performance of 129 economies around the world relying on 80 indicators such as the institutional environment for innovation, the education system, research and development activity, the infrastructure for innovation and different forms of knowledge, technology and creative outputs. The world’s most-innovative country is Switzerland, followed by Sweden, the United States of America, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. GII identified India, South Africa, Chile, Israel and Singapore as regional leaders.

'The GII shows us that countries that prioritize innovation in their policies have seen significant increases in their rankings,' said WIPO Director General Francis Gurry. 'The rise in the GII by economic powerhouses like China and India have transformed the geography of innovation and this reflects deliberate policy action to promote innovation.'

The full report and the key findings are available online.
